kinds of pressures unless you stop the rocket fire. >> the united states has played its hand certainly in a way that -- that helps netanyahu. the u.s., president obama said personally from the beginning, that the cause of this conflict is hamas rocket attacks on israel. and the intolerable suffering that that causes for israeli population. so he's squarely placed the blame on hamas. at the same time, obama has been working with his contacts in the region. he's been on the phone to president morsi in egypt, to the prime minister in turkey. now we see the u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon heading to cairo. all these diplomatic efforts are also being brought into play. i think, again, it will come down to whether egypt is prepared to exert leverage and pay some capital with its own militant wing to bring hamas into some kind of cease-fire. >> and can the u.s. use as a stick in this diplomacy the billions of dollars in aid that we give to egypt? >> conceivably, that would be possible, norah. i think the u.s. has been very reluctant to play that card so far. one reason we continue to be ab

with jindal in particular and his pushing back against obama care. on the one hand they're repudiating romney's comments and saying they're the party of all americans yet when it comes to health care jindal is saying the federal government can control it in his states. so i think there you see a contradiction or at least a paradox in their policy in their actual rhetoric. i think going forward we'll see someone like jindal have to wrestle with that. he doesn't want to have romney care a la obama care hanging over his head in 2016 and yet he's trying to say he's for all americans and they should be the party of law louisianans or americans. it's too paradoxical to answer right now. >> we've all damned them with faint praise, jindal, rubio, and, of course, sarah palin. did you want to throw something else in, karen? >> i was going to say the other problem with this frame that the makers and the takers that jindal is sort -- that these guys are all trying to hide and shy away from is let's not forget those makers, they sure get a lot of corporate welfare. i have no doubt that

met a model for the states could i did not mean the entire arizona law, i just met the e-verify portion," i did not trust you. latinos voted for obama because they did not trust romney on the immigration question, they did not like the rhetoric. there was no reason for this, because like i say, the majority of the american people want to see immigration reform. this is something very important, and it shows why politics has to do with immigration policy. i think the anti-immigration lobby has been very effective in creating the perception that the conservative base is anti- immigrants. that is just not true. poll after poll shows, study after study shows, that the majority of conservatives believe in border security but also believe in immigration reform. before the primary season we had -- we commissioned a study to study immigration views of likely republican primary voters. your tea partyers, people committed to the conservative movement. as long as you have border security there, the support legalization, a path to citizenship, a guest worker program. included a bad word "am
